Dear Fellow Princeton Area Alumni:
Summer is winding down. Soon the leaves will be turning, the weather will be cooling, students will be arriving on campus, and the Princeton Tigers Football team will start their defense of their 2016 Ivy Championship.
As an area alum you have the benefit of staying connected to Princeton, and the added benefit of being a member of one of the largest regional alumni associations, the Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) (www.princetonaaa.org). The PA3 boasts over 3000 undergraduate and graduate alums, spouses, and parents of current students. As a member, are welcome to attend any of the 50+ events we hold annually. This includes monthly “First Friday” luncheons with a current PhD student, monthly “Propellers” on the Second Tuesday of each month featuring a Princeton entrepreneur, and a monthly book club. In addition, we host a number of ad-hoc events including social happy hours, career and networking events, community service projects, lectures, seminars, exhibitions, performances, and much more. Finally we work with the University to support various student-related activities including hosting students for Thanksgiving and other holidays, mentoring, etc. We also have an Annual Dinner, which has had a number of interesting speakers.
My plea to you today is to encourage you to become a “dues-paying member.” Dues-Paying members get discounted admission to our paid events, but more importantly, dues provide support for our various activities. We are proud to have sponsored numerous PICS (Princeton Internships in Civic Service) summer internships for current students, which have been made possible by the generosity of our dues paying members. Simply put, the more dues we collect, the more Princeton students can be "In Our Nation's (and local communities') Service"
Annual dues are only $30 ($20 if you are a recent graduate within the past 10 years). You can also show a stronger level of support by being a “Top Tiger” with a $100 contribution.
As the next generation of alumni make their way back to campus, it is a perfect time to become a dues-paying member. Just visit:
You can pay by credit card or check online, but if you prefer to mail a check, please make it payable to the Princeton Area Alumni Association, and send it to our Treasurer, Fouad J. Masrieh *69 (firstname.lastname@example.org):
